Bradenton City Council OK's 2012 Seafood Festival

BRADENTON — The annual Seafood Festival today won formal approval from the Bradenton City Council.

The popular event is slated for March 30-April 1, and will take place next year on the more easterly side of Bradenton’s downtown, organizers have said.

Council members asked during their regular meeting this morning whether there would be a person with authority on site the day of the event to handle any problems, and were told that there would be.

At a recent workshop, city council members heard a litany of complaints from Seafood Fest organizers, who contended the city needs to streamline its planning for big events downtown.
